Bolgheri Superiore D.O.C.

Cabernet Franc 100%


This is one of the rare 100% Cabernet Francs from Bolgheri and indeed from Italy, dedicated by Marilisa Allegrini to her brother Walter. It has become the jewel in Poggio al Tesoro’s crown. In Bolgheri’s microclimate and in the stony soils of the Via Bolgherese vineyard, situated in the prestigious area known as Soprastrada, this grape variety – which is generally used to give a touch of elegance to Bordeaux wines – finds an ideal habitat in which to express itself in an absolutely independent and original fashion.

Climate Trend


2008 was an excellent vintage, characterised by a mild spring and a rainy June which allowed the soil to store sufficient water reserves before a dry and breezy summer. Rainfall in mid-August prevented the grapes from overripening and they maintained a good acid content. The harvest took place in optimal climatic conditions, with hot, dry days and cool, breezy nights, which favoured ideal ripening indexes and maintained grape health, despite light rainfall that occurred towards the end of the harvest.
